Historically, General Charles Henry Howard and James W. Wilson decided to develop it as a housing community and named it Fair Oaks. The area grew significantly after the construction of Highway 50 in 1954 as it made commuting to Sacramento much easier. Howard and Wilson gave Fair Oaks the nickname “Crown of the Sacramento Valley” due to its location and comfortable setting. Fair Oaks is known for being a popular suburb and a bedroom community of greater Sacramento. This last paragraph and more information can oddly be found at the Mother Load Van & Storage website.
